Valentine's Day in our household

I don't think that in our relationship Valentine's day is the only day when my husband buys me flowers or presents, but it's always nice to get something additional on a special day. Even though my husband thinks that Valentine's day someone's wonderful marketing trick where we all forced to buy cards, presents, flowers and deep down I agree with it, I think some men may need some kind of a reminder such as 14th February that their women should be treated if they don't do that often.

As this year Valentine's day was on Friday and normally we go swimming on Fridays we decided not to change our routine, so we had a lovely “romantic” swim, followed my a lovely meal in a pub ( I forgot to take a picture of our meal, as always), exchange of Valentines cards, ballet tickets, tulips and slightly overdone fudge, but overall I can't wish for me!

What did you do on Valentine's Day?


  1. I tend to agree with your husband that Valentine's day is a marketing ploy to get us to buy cards, flowers, and chocolates but I also agree that its a nice reminder to appreciate those we love. Your Valentine's date sounds great! My husband and I always cook a new recipe together every year, a tradition we started on our first Valentine's together back when we were newly dating.

  2. I agree with your husband and the comment above. However, it's also nice to be "treated" extra special, like those lovely tulips, ballet tickets etc… Lucky you! Ours was also made extra specially when my husband also bought our 3-year-old her first bouquet of flowers. He said he wanted to be the first one who bought her flowers :) #MagicMoments.

    1. aaaw thats very sweet! I will keep this idea in mind for our little one))

  3. Oh how lovely, I can't imagine my OH ever thinking enough to buy my tickets for thr ballet - hope it was good. #MagicMoments

  5. I'm not sure my husband would manage a ballet but I love the tulips and romantic swim idea! #MagicMoments
